Today’s Menu of Choices

If today I focus on all the ways that things could go wrong, there’s a pretty good chance some of them will.
If today I focus on the strength and wisdom that God supplies, there’s a very good chance that things will go well.

If today I focus on the things that frustrate me, disappoint me, and bring me sadness, there’s a very good chance that I will be frustrated, disappointed and sad.
If today I focus on the things and people that make me feel rewarded, fulfilled and blessed, there’s an excellent chance that I will feel blessed, fulfilled and rewarded.

If today I blame others, criticize others and find fault with others, there’s an excellent chance that I will have a perfectly miserable day and spread my misery to others.
If today I choose responsibility for my own choices and actions, and tolerance, patience and encouragement for others, I will help make a good day.

If today I choose to walk in faith, look for and see the good that is around me, and share the grace that I seek and have been shown, I will reflect the Light that lives in me and be a blessing to others.

I believe that I will make a good day today.
